Moving week

So we’ve got a lot happening this week, even though school and all our activities have officially finished for the year.

Sunday there’s church. There’s also a rally I’m thinking about going to, but it’s at the same time as church.

Monday, Darrin’s work has a Christmas party that he might go to. I’m also getting a quote on ducted aircon in the new house. And hopefully we’ll be able to go to the bank and sign all the paperwork at their end.

Tuesday, nothing as yet.

Wednesday, I’m taking the kids to see the chiro. Was meant to be last week, but they only booked me in instead of all the kids. So I dragged them all down there and found out oops, it’s only you this time. They went back to sit in the car while I was on the table.

Also, our new neighbours in number 24 (on the other side of the shared wall) are settling on Wednesday.

Thursday, nothing yet.

Friday is gonna be a doozy. We’re getting a 9 cubic metre skip dropped off. I also plan to go to Costco to get snacks & drinks for everyone who’s helping us move on Saturday. In the afternoon, the plumber is coming to pick up the temporary hot water service. Sometime that day we’ll be getting a text from the conveyancer telling us that the settlements have gone through, at which point I’ll pretty much drop everything and go pick up the keys.

And then the fun starts.

For Friday, the plan is to take over the Christmas tree and decorations and set that up. I’ll also fill up the rest of the back of my car with as much kitchen stuff as I can fit, and start putting that away at the new house. We’ll all have showers or baths. Then we’ll come back to Banks Street to spend our last night in this house.

Saturday I’m dropping the little boys off at a friend’s house at 9. I’ll probably pack up my car with more boxes for the kitchen and head over to the new house after. Darrin’s (hopefully) picking up a moving truck at 10 to move the big heavy stuff (we’re still waiting on confirmation that there’s one available). And we have friends bringing trailers and muscles.

We’ll feed everyone at the new house. Maybe we’ll make Caleb cook sausages. Or maybe I’ll get Costco pizzas on Friday and cook them in AN ACTUAL WORKING OVEN!

Anyway, we’ll see what happens. Tuesday & Thursday I’ll probably have the kids help me pick up EVERY LITTLE PIECE OF LEGO around the house and put it back where it belongs. Caleb may have to move out of his room and in with his brothers for the week so we can store stuff in his room.

And then on Sunday the 19th…yeah, none of us are getting to church that day.
